Our Policies
Cat at home with cat sitter in Austin

We have these policies in place to help us keep our prices reasonable and allow us to focus on being the best cat sitters in Austin.

Please note that we require at least one visit per day to properly care for your cats.

For new clients, we have a three-visit minimum. Once you are an established client, one-time visits are available.

Cancellations within 48 hours of service start date will incur a cancellation fee of 50% of booking amount.

We require that you either have a keypad lock or provide a lockbox where you will place your house key for our sitter to use. Lockboxes are inexpensive and extremely helpful. This policy allows us to reduce our environmental impact since it means we don’t have to drive all over the Austin area picking up and returning keys, it’s more secure for our clients, and it also helps us keep our fees as low as possible.

We love our logo and we love advertising our service, but we will absolutely never ever show up at your home in company-branded vehicles or clothing. Doing so would broadcast the fact that you are away on vacation or at work, and this would be detrimental to your home’s security.

We unfortunately cannot perform medical procedures such as administering subcutaneous fluids. We can give oral medications.

Full payment is required in advance.

Client intake paperwork must be filled out completely (and updated as needed) before service can begin.
